Let the Fun Begin!

By now you may have picked up on the fact that we are just a little bit excited about Saturday's BrisStyle Indie Mother & Child Market.  Not only will it be the HOTtest destination for all things handmade for Mother & Child it will also be the perfect day out for the whole family. You've gotta love that.....

:: a painting a day ::
Our resident award winning artist Eliza Leahy from "A Painting a Day" fame will be setting up her studios in the serene courtyard area. Take away a charcoal drawing of yourself or little one or Eliza will take orders for more detailed drawings like the one below. Drawings start from as little as $10 so all the family can have their portraits done...even Nana!

:: colouring competition ::
The kids can once again visit the Colouring Competition Stand where the winners will be in the running to win a BrisStyle Gift Voucher to spend at the markets. BrisStyle designer Sam from Jetta’s Nest designed the artwork.

:: the brisstyle fairy and wowee creations ::
The gorgeous BrisStyle fairy will be back with balloons in tow and the talented wowee face painters will be onsite to create the wildest designs for all the kids.
You'll find wowee in the courtyard area at the entrance to the hall...and if you follow the ballons and bubbles you'll soon find our magical fairy.

:: brisbane brown owls crafty workshop ::
Under the large tree at the front of the markets you'll find the Brisbane Brown Owls crafting away at their little drop in zone. Market goers of all ages will be able to sit and join in with their crafty adventures and soak up each others company.

:: casey mcardle photographic studios ::
Casey McArdle Photography is a small business run primarily from Narangba on the north side of Brisbane. Casey specialises in family photography including maternity, newborn, babies and families. She will be joining us on October 8th with a very special addition to her stall - a mini photo booth ready to take FREE photographs! The images will be uploaded into a gallery on her website where you will have the opportunity to purchase digital files or photographic prints.

:: abc learning and mr bear ::
The team from ABC Learning will also be there to spread the love via their famous mascot Mr Bear. The ABC girls will be hosting crafty activities for the kids as well as giving out little show bags and helium balloons!

:: some crafty little visitors ::
Our littlest friends from Bambino Bazaar will be there with their latest handmade projects on display. So please stop by and find out what makes Brisbane's newest handmade entrepreneurs tick and how you can support them through your own creativity.

:: sausage sizzle ::
While all the Mum’s are starting their pre Christmas shopping , Dad can indulge in the best sausage sizzle this side of the river when the Australian Cattle Dog & Kelpie Club of Qld once again set up shop on the kitchen veranda. Along with the sauso's they will have their famous Devonshire Teas as well as loads of cool drinks.

:: sweet treats ::
Bel from Enticing Icing will have all her famous cupcakes, chocolate crackles, yummy biscuits as well as the latest additions to her Sweet Art range to indulge in. Of course there's a plethora of great cafe's and restaurants in Racecourse Road too, ready to serve up great food and drinks to get you through the day.

:: a world record attempt ::
The Racecourse Road Business Group will be  hosting a world record attempt to raise awareness for breast cancer. It will all take place in the grounds behind the market to create...wait for it...the largest set of pink boobs this side of the river! It's all VERY tame really as two big circles will be drawn on the ground and they are aiming at filling them with 200 balloon holding participants. Totally radical, but what a great way to promote breast cancer!

So, as we said, there is oodles to do and oodles to see so come along and enjoy a fun day out! We'd love to see you!
